6.0 Le Ribouldingue, 10, rue, St-Julien le Pauvre in the 5th, 01.46.33.98.80, closed Sundays and Mondays is a niche restaurant (abats) open since 2006. I'd read the other day in the JDD, that the cooking was "miraculous" under the new chef who's been here for over a year - well, it slipped by me - one more French-French place with a Japanese cook,
It looks unchanged outside and in and to my recall the menu is the same (except there's no longer that astoundingly priced [12 E] wine on the wine list.)
My gastro-friend V. ordered "simply" he insisted, first a galette of pigs' ears and salad that Astrid T'Serclaes had called unforgettable - quite good - and I had the same thing I had when it opened, succulent sweetbreads on top of potatoes with whole capers and garlic.
Then he ordered the tete de veau with gribiche sauce and I had (again what I did in 2006), the veal kidneys with potatoes dauphinoise - both delicious.
As a finale, he had wedges of grapefruit in an Gentian/Campari herbal jelly that one might call miraculous and I had a better-than-usual quenelle of dark chocolate with ice cream.
Our bill with a bottle of bottled water and bottle of the the Breton's best Bourgeuil and two coffees was 111 E.
Go? Yes indeed.
